The story behind The Queens Tea begins with a Royal visit to Ceylon in the year 1954. During this royal visit, The Duke of Edinburgh Prince Philip hand planted a few tea bushes while touring Pedro estate. This very same bush was used to create The Lovers Leap Golden Pearl Tea commonly referred to as The Queens Tea.
To add to its stature the same tea bush was used to provide the Ceylon tea served to the English Queen at her Diamond jubilee celebrations in 2012 at Buckingham Palace.
Today the tea estate owner is proud to offer this tea processed by the very same tea master who manufactured it for The Queens Diamond Jubilee.
The tea will be accompanied by ‘ Two-of-a-kind ‘ blue sapphires from Sri Lanka, aptly named the Royal Twins. The Royal Twins are two stunning 30 Carat blue sapphires cut from the same stone and are each larger than Princess Diana's Sapphire. The Royal Twins are also accompanied by 440 Carats of other various sapphires.
To encase this one of a kind tea the tea estate owners have obtained a 24 Carat, gold plated, pure crystal jar which has been exquisitely crafted and designed by Ralph Lauren. The caddy sits within a custom made pure gold and teakwood box, available in high gloss or matt finish (colours optional) and a custom made 22 Carat gold spoon and pure gold strainer.
